Monatomic Gas

Postby nelms6678 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 5:23 pm

For a monatomic gas the value is 3/2R, what is R’s value? Is it a constant or a rate?

R is related to the gas constant or 8.3145 J/ (K x mol). It will just be a constant.

R is the gas constant, which is 8.314 J/(mol*K)

R is the constant that we use in this case, which is 8.3145 J/K*mol

Does this mean that the specific heat for all ideal monatomic gases is equal?

The molar heat capacity for ideal monatomic gases will be equal, not the specific heat capacity though.
